ELECTION DAY November 6, 2018

I am honored to announce that I have been endorsed by the Sierra Club Catoctin Group.

During my first term, I worked closely with my colleague Council Member Keegan-Ayer to pass a bill concerning Solar Facilities and Floating Zones. I also worked with Council Member Jerry Donald to pass a bill that widened the requirements for waterbody buffers under certain circumstances. When it became clear that the County Executive’s bill to amend our Forest Resource Ordinance would not pass, I worked with stakeholder groups, including representatives from the Sierra Club and Potomac Conservancy, to find consensus on ways to strengthen the ordinance, even though it would not go as far as we would have liked. I have also supported budgets that invested in more electric buses for our TransIT fleet and increased funding to our Office of Sustainability.

I look forward to continuing my partnership with environmental activists to look for more ways that our community can invest in smart growth, incentivize green choices, and make decisions through the lens of climate change. Read about my ideas in my Sierra Club endorsement questionnaire.
